SAVE YOUR BREATH
Breathing exercises to help you get more out of life
GET BACK TO SLEEP Wide awake and restless at 2am? Breathe in through your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, then exhale through your mouth for eight seconds. This slows your heart rate and triggers the parasympathetic nervous system for maximum chill.
HAVE HOTTER SEX Practise slowing your breathing together during sex. And then, when you’re on the verge, take some deep, full breaths. They can help you pause and build up to a second wind. Everybody wins.
BEAT THE BUTTERFLIES When your stomach is doing somersaults, take some deep diaphragmatic breaths into the belly. Inhale through the nose and out through the mouth with a little pause in between. As you breathe in, expand your belly, and as you exhale, pull it back in. You’ve got this.
